  1. Still, it’s a solid rental and a good way to spend some time having a bit of fun. If you really want to kick ass as the Fantastic 4, go play Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
  2. The game follows a simple beat 'em up formula that will keep you entertained for awhile, but it lacks so much of the depth and creativity that we expect from the comics and movies.

    This game is literally you punching as your favorite member of the Fantastic Four for hours on end.

    The How-To Guide Guide on how to murder a solid license, the only thing this game succeeds in is being even worse than its predecessor. [Aug 2007, p.88]

    The gameplay is similar to the PS3 version--but with a static camera, limited hero skills, boss fights that drag across multiple levels, and mediocre PS2 graphics, the end result is an irritating mess of pointless repetition. [Sept 2007, p.84]
  6. Every aspect of the game is categorically bad; the story is tough to follow, the graphics are lousy, and the gameplay is so contrived and repetitive that it's unlikely anyone will garner much enjoyment from the game, no matter how low their standards are for being entertained.

    There is a special level of Video Game Hell reserved for ROTSS. Simply by existing, it has made the world that much less fun. It's the videogame equivalent of watching your dog being run over, with worse production values.

    WOW! This was a lot better than the first game. It is so fun because of all the things you can do.
